Quoting Quiverfull: Oppressive Patriarchy or Good Submission?

by Larry Solomon from Biblical Gender Roles - Are Women Who Want to Submit to and Serve Their Husbands Mentally Ill? (not directly linking to this post)Editor's note: Normal love makes you want to submit to your man? Somehow I don't think that's at all how it works. But Larry doesn't seem to care, he just wants to be worshiped, him and his penis, and he's not able to achieve high enough status on his own merits, he has to put down women to raise himself. … [Read more...]

Quoting Quiverfull: Part 4 – Public School is Evil, But You Are More Evil For Not Obeying?

by Debi Pearl from No Greater joy – Rising to the ChallengeEditor's note: Thankfully this is the last bit of this grand exercise in cognitive dissonance. Which boils down to submit more and become a better wife. As always it's blame the mothers. … [Read more...]

Quoting Quiverfull: Part 2 – Public School is Evil, But You Are More Evil For Not Obeying?

by Debi Pearl from No Greater joy - Rising to the ChallengeEditor's note: So in Debi's world the greater sin is not that of not schooling your children at home, but of possibly not living up to your husband's requirements and expectations. In other words this husband's desire to send the kids to the local public school is more about his perceived notions of her personal failure. What if the father sees and recognizes first hand that many of their friends homeschooled children aren't getting much of an education? What if he wants them to have opportunities for social skill development. There could be a host of reasons that have nothing to do with the mother's possible failure to send the … [Read more...]

Quoting Quiverfull: Flirting and Teasing are the Secret to Keeping Marriages Alive?

by Shoshanna Pearl Easling from No Greater Joy magazine - How Do You Keep Marriage Alive?Editor's note: Shoshanna is answering a reader's question in this bit. While none of the things she's saying are necessarily bad advice I find it revealing and interesting that there's nothing on that list involving communication or discussion or being truthful and real with each other. It sounds more like a list to seduce someone else. What do you think? … [Read more...]

Quoting Quiverfull: So If You’re Humble & Godly Enough the Abuse Will Magically Stop?

by Rick Thomas at Rick Thomas.net - Should I Count My Mean Husband More Significant Than I Count Myself?Editor's note: This is one of those crazy-making pieces of illogic that set women up for abuse in Quiverfull Evangelical Christianity, the magic formula of being humble enough, Godly enough, pure-minded enough, good enough that it will stop the abuse. Wake up and smell the coffee, Church, humility and humbleness will NEVER stop an abuser who is determined to hurt you. There are piles of dead or battered women who tried just this advice and still got beaten. … [Read more...]

Quoting Quiverfull: Part 3 – Every Woman A Jezebel?

by Debi Pearl from No Greater Joy - The Jezebel ProfileEditor's note: Debi doesn't say what to do if you are married to a man that shirks his responsibilities, forcing the wife to take over everything. But I'm pretty sure Debi would never fault the man, always calling the wife a Jezebel type. Remember, if Debi's not name calling and blaming a woman she's not happy. … [Read more...]

Quoting Quiverfull: Are Women in Law Enforcement Wrong?

by John Piper from Ask Pastor John at Desiring God - Should Women Be Police Officers?Editor's note: He never really answers the defining question. Instead he tells the same tale he did a few weeks earlier about women civil engineers and direct/indirect command so I left out that part since it's an almost word for word exact same thing he already said. Instead here's his definitions of manhood and womanhood as they are in the home and workplace. It's still confusing, sounding like he's ready to say women should not be officers of the law but waffling around it instead of honestly saying what he thinks. What do you think? … [Read more...]

Here Are 5 Misogynistic, Christian ‘Family Values’ Taught to Hypocrite Josh Duggar

by Vyckie Garrison NLQ Founder and published at Raw Story Vyckie Garrison was once a minor celebrity in the Quiverfull Movement, made famous by TV’s Duggar family. As a devout, Bible-believing Christian and the mother of seven homeschooled children, Garrison spent 16 years, with her husband, publishing a newspaper for families on a similar path. Today, via a website called No Longer Quivering, she publishes resources for women leaving the movement. Surprise, surprise: Josh Duggar had a couple paid Ashley Madison accounts during the same years he worked as executive director of FRC Action, the political arm of Family Research Council’s “traditional family values” organization. … [Read more...]

Quoting Quiverfull: Part 1 – A Woman’s Submission Determines Her Husband’s Success?

by Lori Alexander of Always Learning - Are You Preventing Your Husband's Success?Editor's note: I believe what Mrs. Alexander is saying here about rejecting possible employees based upon how submissive their wives are violates national labor law. Seems like this would fall under the protections in place to keep employers discriminating against potential employees based on religion and/or sex. She should be careful not to post her reasoning for rejecting candidates online like this where anyone can see it and use it against her in court. Either way, the idea of a wife's submission being key to the success or failure of his career is laughable at best.  There are careers where the ability … [Read more...]
